BreakOUT! has worked very hard to hold their local police department accountable for discriminatory policing and police violence. The specific wins resulting from the Consent Decree include:

  • Sexual orientation or gender cannot be used as probable cause for a stop or arrest.
  • The NOPD must adopt policies to ensure that transgender people are referred to by their preferred name and appropriate gender pronoun.
  • Transgender people will not be subjected to overly invasive searches due to their gender identity or to solely to determine their anatomy or genitalia.
  • Same-gender searches are to be done in accordance with gender identity.
